Christmas Day, 2014
You would not know it by looking outside but it is Christmas! The snow has all disappeared to be replaced by wind and rain. The projected forecast has us reaching 45 degrees today with strong winds continuing throughout the day. But still… Merry Christmas.
The original plan was to be in Florida this week so I guess complaining about the lack of snow is a moot point. I ended up having to stay home due to work but I was able to get the kids flights down to see their Grandma. She lives in Palm Bay just south of Melbourne. I tried to convince them that it was only fair because of all my solo trips to Disney but since they will not be visiting my second home they were a little difficult to win over.
Anyway, they left me a present before they took off and as soon as Ollie (the cat) woke me up this morning I opened it. We decided we were not sure how Ollie would do with ornaments on the tree so we only setup a small tree on the table. He has been well behaved (so far) so next year I might get brave and try the full tree. Here is what they got for me. I also did a close-up of the picture so everyone can read the caption. I know I have the ‘never grow up’ part nailed, now I guess I have to work on the ‘Grow wise. Grow strong.’ part… 🙂
